Women Daring Greatly Retreat - Lake Travis (Austin, Texas) October 21- 24, 2015

You can choose courage or you can choose comfort but you cannot have both - Brene' Brown

Are you ready to Show Up, Be Seen, Live Bravely….

AND Wholeheartedly?

If the answer is YES (!), then join us for a three day women’s retreat on the shores of beautiful Lake Travis outside of Austin, Texas.  Together we’ll connect deeply and relax in a natural, tranquil lake setting while we explore The Daring Way™. 

The Daring Way™ is a methodology – based on Dr. Brené Brown’s work and research – that inspires us to be ‘all in’ in the many arenas of our lives.  During this highly experiential retreat, we'll incorporate the methodology into a learning experience that transforms the way we live, love, parent, and show up in the world.
